does anyone know where i can get an in-line heater that will handle 250 gallons? I use submersible heaters right now but have to use several to handle all the water and wanted to reduce the amount of equipment used and electric current in the system

One large heater is a scary thought. If you actually find a heater big enough, and it accidentally sticks on... fish soup! A couple smaller ones will reduce the chances of that.

Then again, I dont trust any of the cheap heaters in the hobby. Spend a little and get a temp controller it is VERY cheap insurance compared to the what you've already/will spend/spent.

I run 4 300 watt heaters on a temp controller.

Like said above, I would go with mutiple smaller ones.
